Women

Women live pressure packed lives in our culture.  It's all too easy to find yourself alone - isolated from meaningful, life-giving relationships and distanced from the Life-Giver. The desire of the women's ministry at Goshen is to purposefully connect women for spiritual growth and unity in the faith.  We meet together in various formats to allow God to move among us.  Please join us as we gather to be refreshed around the Fountain of Life - through study of God's Word, laughter, prayer and friendship.

Mom2Mom

Being a mom can be a difficult job….actually we should say a difficult JOY

Our MOM2MOM group is a safe place to share our joys and struggles with other moms and to establish meaningful relationships during this hectic time in our lives.  Whether you are a first time mom or have a number of kids, MOM2MOM is designed for the challenges and needs of a mom who has children from birth through the elementary years.  It is designed for YOU! 

We meet on the second Wednesday of the month from 9:15 - 11:15am to have time with other moms while our kids are well taken care of by our wonderful and loving caregivers.  This gives us moms a time to share and to support one another on this journey of motherhood.   We seek to offer important discussions and speakers to encourage us in our relationship with God, in our mothering, and in our marriages.

We are excited this year to focus some of our teaching on the videos, blogs, and devotions of Karen Stubbs.  Here is what Pastor Andy Stanley says about Karen…”Karen Stubbs is a hero to moms!  Through her ministry, Birds on a Wire, Karen shares the lessons she learned as the mother of her four children.  Her practical advice leaves moms feeling equipped for their special role as mothers.…”

We would love to have you join us for our first meeting on Wednesday, September 13 at 9:15am at Goshen.  The first meeting is free to all, so come and check us out!   If you have not attended before, please let us know you are coming so that we can plan for childcare.

Please contact Liz (717-586-6673; liz.grothmann@gmail.com) or Dee (610-306-5541; deloresstick@comcast.net ) if you have any questions.
